Day Thirty One – Kings, Inspiration, and Encouragment

We are now on Day 31 of our reading through the Bible in ninety days. I pray you are not only learning about God, His people, God's work with His people, His mercy and grace; but that you are also being blessed by the Spirit of God convicting you of your sin, and convincing you …

Day Thirty – The Peril and Power of Pride; Without Prejudice

It is written in Proverbs, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18).  Pride even gets into the hearts and minds of the best among us; and that is never more clear to me than when I was reading in 2 Chronicles 18 – 31 this morning. I read of …

Day Twenty Nine – Revival

The Scripture reading for today is 2 Chronicles 5 - 17. One of the things you will notice about the Chronicles is that they maintain a fairly positive approach to the lineage of David, yet do mention their failures, and their turning from the LORD. This morning I took note of king Asa, and the …

Day Twenty Eight – David, Solomon, and the Temple

Our Scripture reading for today is 1 Chronicles 23 - 2 Chronicles 4. I know as I read through this this morning there were names of the Levites, soldiers, mighty men, artisans who would make the designs and so on, and so on. I did mark a few verses that stood out to me as …

Day Twenty Seven – Priest and King

David, as a shepherd boy, had a heart for God.  While he was doing the task of taking care of the family flock and herds he meditated upon God and His Word; writing and singing songs [Psalms].  He would become angry when ever he heard an enemy or anyone defy the name of Jehovah [YHWH].  …

Day Twenty Six – GOD Deals With Evil In His People

The reading for today is 2 Kings 20 - 1 Chronicles 7. Blessings as you read. In reading through the Bible in 90 days there are passages which, to be honest, I sometimes find it difficult to read; and today’s reading was no exception.  I am speaking particularly of 1 Chronicles 1 – 9 which …

Day Twenty Five – Worshiping the Good Thing

The Scripture reading this morning covered 2 Kings 7 – 19.  There was mention of many kings.  Still none of the kings of the Northern kingdom “pleased the LORD”; only one got close yet not sufficient and that was Jehu.  There were some of the kings of the Southern kingdom who “pleased the LORD”, but …

Day Twenty Four – Prophets and Kings

In the reading today - 1 Kings 15 - 2 Kings 6 - we begin the reading of a king of Judah by the name of Asa (1 Kings 15), and it is said of him, “Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father” (15:11).  We …

Day Twenty Three – A Heart Turned Away

David, even though he had committed adultery against Uriah the Hittite, and had murdered him is still the standard of a man with a heart for God.  The thing which makes a difference is that he did have a heart for God.  He loved God, and wanted only to glorify Him.  It is seen in …

Day Twenty Two – When Sin Finds You Out

The title above comes from the Law of Moses (Numbers 32:23); however, as I read the chapters from 2 Samuel 12 – 24 that is what they were dealing with in king David. The reading today included 1 Kings 1; and Solomon's coronation as King of Israel. As we read chapter 11 yesterday it showed …

Day Twenty One – The Rise and Fall of Kings and Commoners

The reading today was from 1 Samuel 30 thru 2 Samuel 11.  Quite interesting reading of wars, strife, the death of one king and his family; the rise of a new king, and his fall. We see battles where people are killed.  People of Israel are destroyed by foreign kings, and by their own people.  …

Day Twenty – King Saul, and David

Reading today is 1 Samuel 17 - 29. I will do a little backing up to chapter 15 for study purposes, and a reminder of King Saul's sin. Saul began his reign as the chosen, anointed king of Israel, chosen by God.  His heart was right, humble, and honorable.  He seemed not to be grasping …

Day Nineteen – GOD Is Not Contained in a Box

We have some Christian leaders today saying to us, that God is bound to answer our prayers, answer our demands, and so forth; maybe not in so strong a fashion but many times in more subtle ways.  One thing we need to realize as Children of our GOD is that God is obligated to us …

Day Eighteen – Life Decays Without God

Today's reading is Judges 14 - 1 Samuel 3. For me it was and is a very rewarding experience; as it usually is reading the Word of God.  Reading the Judges chapter 14 through 21 you will find a common phrase in it in the latter chapters. “In those days there was no king in …

Day Seventeen – The Peril of Disobedience

Today's Scripture reading is Judges 1 - 13,  we read of Joshua’s death, and how the people anger the LORD through their worship of foreign gods; which actually begins by departing from GOD.  Disobedience is the first step of departure from GOD; “And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of …
